It is so quiet in this house, except when the baby starts zooming around. We've nicknamed him Mr. Plunkett, he has a odd gait that's half forward and half up and down. He and Peanut have become the best of friends, surprisingly. Peanut has been the baby of the house for the last year, but he's sharing that position very well.
Con comes home in two more days and I hope the replacement plate shows up before she does! The day she left, I dropped her favorite turquoise Fiesta plate and of course it broke....luckily that color is still readily available. Several years ago I bought her and Chuck each a place setting, hers was pink, Chuck's turquoise. Turns out pink dishes are not her favorite....so Chuck owns the pink plate now!
The cilantro is beginning to bloom, time to plant another round for the salsa when the tomatoes start. The current crop is all from overwintered seeds, and I was amazed at how well it does. From a small row, maybe four feet long, I now have a thick patch about 8 x 4 feet. This is after I tilled, also, though maybe that helped.
